Hi guys, quick question which I haven't been able to find a definite answer to.

I am building a pair of floorstanding 3 way speakers using the DRC - DA8 as the crossover. When measuring the response of each driver on baffle individually, should I leave the mic positioned 1m away at tweeter level or should I move it to the level of each driver for each associated measurement? If so, my woofer channel is a pair of 6in drivers so would I have to position the mic between these at 1m instead for this measurement?

Hope that's clear, thanks! :)

For driver correction, I would move the mic on axis of each driver. It's a good idea to do some off-axis measurements too. It shouldn't make much difference for the two woofers exactly where. When you are implementing the crossover, I'd put the mic between the drivers if they are not close together.
